Unhappy Problem install

I have just updated to version 1.4.0. The cover search seems to work but doesn't find anything, even for recent books. I have tried to look at the Plug in Index (wanting to find a better cover search) but this is missing. Re-installing and clicking on Repair doesn't help, nor does going back to version 1.3.0.

I have Windows 7 but Calibre has worked fine before this.

Any ideas, please?

Many thanks

Uninstall (does not affect books or settings), not repair

delete the OLD 1.4 download
get a fresh 1.4 download and install that


many plugins can be downloaded directly from the Plugins forum here at MR. Follow the instructions there on how manually install these.

Search the Internet PI is the one I use.
Search Google for Images
Search Fantastic Fiction for Title (I then drag the big cover from the full details over)

Many thanks. Now everything works perfectly. I have also taken your advice on Search the Internet. Now all my books have technicolor covers!
